An heir to the Chortkov dynasty, Rabbi Yisroel Friedman is the Rav of the Chortkover Kloiz in Manchester, England. In this comprehensive book, he traces Chortkover Chassidus from its origins with Reb Dovid Moshe, son of Rabbi Yisroel of Rizhin; to its vast dissemination to thousands of Chassidim in prewar Europe and Eretz Yisrael; from the devastating blows of the Holocaust and its aftermath, through to the present day. The author thoroughly researched the distinguished Chortkov legacy, and its genesis with the Holy Rizhiner. He brings to bear the oral history and written documentation of his heritage. This significant work is replete with photos and documents of deep interest to every student of Jewish history. Rabbi Friedman is the author of a previously published related work, The Golden Dynasty, about Rizhiner Chassidus. As inspirational as it is informative, The Rebbes of Chortkov brings the reader to the door of the Rebbes' court, where their wisdom and wonders can be seen and felt. In the hands of this talented author and unique authority, the spiritual nobility and dynamic power of generations of Chortkover Rebbes shine on every page.
